Don’t know what Nintendo Switch Lite color to choose? Here’s our handy guide to every variant currently available.
Unlike the standard Switch, the Nintendo Switch Lite can’t be docked to a television. It also doesn’t feature detachable Joy-Cons, an IR camera, or HD rumble technology.
However, the Lite comes with its own benefits. The smaller form-factor means the 720p-resolution screen looks super sharp, it has a slightly better battery life, and the left-side controls include a D-pad rather than four separate buttons. It’s also lightweight but robust enough for kids. And, best of all, it comes in a range of lovely colors.
A standard Nintendo Switch can be customised with Joy-Cons available in a range of vibrant hues, the most popular being Neon Red and Neon Blue. In contrast, the Nintendo Switch Lite’s color schemes are more subtle and stylish.
The latest color to be announced is Blue, which will hit stores in May 2021. It joins the previously released Coral, Grey, Turquoise, and Yellow editions. A stunning Zacian and Zamazenta Edition was also issued for a limited time to mark the release of Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Nintendo Switch Lite – Colors
Nintendo Switch Lite – Blue
The newest Switch Lite color variant will be released on May 7 in Europe and May 21 in North America. This cool blue edition will suit players who enjoy ocean diving, or corporate bankers with a penchant for navy pinstripe suits.
Nintendo Switch Lite – Grey
The grey edition is perfect for players in middle-age. It’s unassuming, perhaps even dull, but it will match the color of the hair on your temples and it won’t draw ridicule if you’re brave enough to play Balan Wonderworld in public.
Nintendo Switch Lite – Coral
The coral edition has a homespun Etsy vibe. It also reminds us of strawberry-flavoured candy or a slice of tasty processed ham.
Nintendo Switch Lite – Turquoise
The turquoise edition is the coolest Lite variant. Like the blue version, it’s perfect for water babies, although it is more suited to fans of fresh-water lakes and lagoons.
Nintendo Switch Lite – Yellow
The Yellow edition screams fun! It’s the perfect console to take on holiday if you want to play Doom Eternal while working on your tan.
Nintendo Switch Lite – Zacian and Zamazenta Edition (Discontinued)
The Zacian and Zamazenta Edition was released alongside Pokémon Sword and Shield. It’s probably our favourite variant but has now been discontinued.
